Phillip Island Penguin Parade Express

The beauty of making a break for Phillip Island is that its proximity to Melbourne, compact size, and the fascinating diversity of the local wildlife allows you to make the most of even a fleeting visit.

Join Acacia on this Penguin Parade express tour and a late afternoon departure from Melbourne will have you strolling boardwalks atop the coastal cliffs of the Nobbies. You’ll be stunned by glorious views out to the great expanse and incredible power of the churning Bass Strait.

Then avoid the hoi polloi as we invite you to a special underground vantage point from which to take in the Phillip Island Penguin Parade. A local ranger will teach you everything you need to know about these marvellous creatures as dusk sees them returning from the sea to their burrows. No need to worry about the weather with this enviable perch that offers an eye-to-bird’s eye view.
